I’ve been working in design since I was 18. With hundreds of projects under my belt, I bring all the skills developed and lessons learned to bear on each new project. That saves you money and time. You tell me what you need and I get it done — no wasted time or false starts.
I have experience in a number of different design fields. I studied product design, exhibition design, graphic design, media and semiotics. My first gig was putting up stickers in an exhibition center, and later I taught myself web design. I co-founded an IT firm and spent a few years helping it grow. I was CEO of Pixmac stock photo agency, which was bought in 2013 by the American company Pond5. Currently I’m enjoying senior-level design, expert consulting & vanlife travel.
I come from Czechoslovakia, the southern wine region. Before I got into computers, I worked in my family’s business Valka Winery and I still lend a hand from time to time.
Before the internet boom and after, I’ve had the opportunity to help get promising projects off the ground. For instance, I did the icons for the PSPad editor, TheBat email client and Esmska app.
